How does a classic woman dress when attending sporting events? The answer is easy, if you follow the Duchess of Cambridge’s fashion choices for the London 2012 Olympics. By building a wardrobe around a classic color scheme (red, white, blue, and black), she has created a mix-and-match wardrobe that takes her through the many Olympic events in a fun, chic style.
When Kate and William went to the Veledrome to cheer Team GB on in their cycling events, they chose to wear navy and white matching polo shirts. Kate wore a pair ofZara skinny jeans with her shirt and carried her Adidas warmup jacket.

Kate looked classically chic in a blue Stella McCartney knee-length dress that she wore with her Smythe navy blazer with gold buttons to the Men’s Singles Tennis Match at the Olympics. She also wore her signature £145 Givenchy sunglasses to the event, which she has been sporting regularly throughout the Olympics. Along with her navy suede Muse clutch from Russell & Bromley she wore her Stuart Weitzman Corkswoon shoes. In the spirit of mixing-and-matching her clothes, she recently wore the same dress to the opening of The Road to 2012: Aiming High Exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery with a £49,000 gold hooped necklace. (Similar Stella McCartney short sleeved dress in blue royal charmeuse.)
The Smythe One-Button Blazer is currently available in black at ShopBop
The Corkswoon wedges are available on the Stuart Weitzman site
However, if you’d be just as happy with a pair in White or Black check out Amazon or 6PM.COM where they also have them in Nude (Adobe Aniline) in addition to the White and Black and, for the best news, they are currently on sale.
